Countway Library is proud to announce a new service for our patrons: the Info Desk on floor L1 is now managed by a rotating roster of library staff members seven days per week!

Members of the Access Services, Collections, Outreach, and Research and Instruction teams will staff the desk. These library experts will be available to help our users with questions about placing items on hold, locating books or articles, and other information needs.

For questions about the Info Desk, please contact the Info Desk Coordinator, Corey Purcell.
